MAIWA: Workshop - One Pot Palette - Animal Fibres

Tibetans use the liquor from boiled rhubarb leaves as natural mordant that works best with animal fibres.    Apparently, a pound of rhubarb leaves can mordant several pounds of fibre. Make sure you boil the leaves in a well-ventilated area, as the fumes can cause problems, and note that rhubarb leaves contain oxalic acid, which is a poison, and should not be eaten.

Simmer the chopped roots for half an hour. Strain the liquor and add mordanted fibre to the pot. -- Yellow/orange dye from rhubarb. Rhubarb leaves can also be used as a MORDANT
